for tests only leads to painfully knitted brows and lockjaw!
4. Don't eat while you study. Research has shown that simultaneous
operation of the digestive system and the intellect may lead to painful cuts
and abrasions on the palms of your hands and soles of your feet.

significantly reduces risk of stretch marks and age spots in the facial region.

Although classes aren't out until
five, students begin packing their
bags and loading their cars for Spring
Break around noon. This break has
the potential to be the wildest, most
thrilling vacation time for students.
All of the elements are there: fun,
sun, the hint of summer, and
freedom from school for a whole
week. Someone once told me,
"Spring Break is great. There are no
pressures to be with family or to do
anything "hokey" except maybe to
get a job." Many students do head
home for these leisure days and
promise mom they'll be employed
Others save spare change, and
with some ingenuity, have the time
of their lives at a hot vacation spot.
Spring Break transforms pale,
bookworm, body-concious students
into bronze beauties, well fed and
rested Momma's darlings, brave
campers, or even easyriders.
Students at Southwestern have always enjoyed the countryside surrounding
the University that begins at the rock and extends to . . . well, wherever. Rolling
is the concept of enriching the students' lives through closer glimpses of this
milieu. These "glimpses" are effectively captured through the rolling process
which involves a car, more than one occupant, and a beverage of any kind.
Through years of experienced rolling, students have acquired favored spots
that are a "must" for breaking in new rollers. These hot spots include The
Walburg Angel, Bitch Bridge, the Cotton Gin, Heaven and Hell, Pecan Grove,
Snuffy's, Possums, and assorted drinking holes. The l-House was fast developing
into a hot spot until its destruction on February 19; however, its memory will
live on in imfamy.
These exclusive sights generally have their own legends incorporated in their
fame. These legends are told during late-night rolls and effectively inspire fear
and awe, two elements that always add excitement to rolling, by Katie Parvin

Southwestern University's campus has
been called one of Texas' most beautiful
and best planned college facilities. Locat-
ed in residential area on the eastern edge
of the city, the 32 buildings situated on
500 acres supply an unusually fine envi-
ronment for living and learning.
The Administration Building, completed

women of the University. Directly east of
this hall is Kurth.
And Mabee Hall
Kurth Residence Hall is a women's
dorm completed in 1962 and named in
honor of the late Mr. E. L. Kurth. Mabee
Residence Hall is the newest of the wom-
en's dorms. The Brent Atrium was dedi-

Mrs. Lillian Blanch Brent who graduated
from Southwestern in 1931 and made
funding for the atrium possible. J.E. & L.E.
Mabee Foundation contributed
$1,000,000 toward the construction of
Mabee Hall, and their challenge grant en-
couraged many others to participate in
this $3,200,000 project.

A Traditional Weekend
The first Homecoming festivities at
Southwestern were held April 21, 1909. A
contemporary historian described the oc-
casion as the "biggest event in Southwes-
The town closed its business doors,
decked itself in black and gold, and wel-
comed 1,500 ex-students, some of whom
had not been on campus for over a quar-
ter of a century ... At noon a barbecue
dinner was held on the campus - it was
nearly rained out - and the tables were
filled three times.
Although Homecoming at S.U. hasn't
always meant barbecue for 1,500, tradi-
tionally, it has been a time of celebration
and a chance for collegiates to interact
with alumni. With no football game to pro-
vide the central focus, S.U. has, over the
years, come up with its own itinerary of
Homecoming traditions. Most of these
have been designed with students in
University Sing was Friday. There were
nine official entries and six filler acts this
year. Saturday's activities kept everyone
happily entertained with a parade around
the campus circular drive, a barbecue
lunch on the lawn between the SUB and
Chapel, and a performance of the top
singing winners of Sing for the Alumni As-
sociation's Award Ceremony. "Old-tim-
ers" baseball and basketball games fol-
The event for Saturday night was the
Homecoming Dance, and the place was
the Country Palace in Round Rock. The
weekend ended on Sunday with the tradi-
tional worship service, which held special
significance for all involved in the South-
western community, by Teresa Deal.
A HOMECOMING TRADITION
Sing has remained a Southwestern Uni-
versity tradition which everyone looks
forward to. This year's show was a great
success. All four sororities and fraterni-
ties entered the competition along with
numerous individual acts.
There were some inspiring skits which
resembled Broadway productions. The
Zetas grabbed everyone's attention with
their elaborate version of Cats. Everyone
took a trip back to the big band era with
the Delta Zeta's all out presentation of
songs such as "Rum and Coca Cola" and
"Apple Blossum Time." The Pikes kept up
a tradition of their own by winning first
place yet another year with their produc-
tion of songs of the old south.
A few entries reflected on campus life.
First, the Campus Life Staff shared a be-
hind the scenes look at the Maintenence
Crew. Their humorous versions of the
words to the songs from The Sound of
Music won third place. The Tri Delts'
"DDD T.V." opened Sing with an overview
of Southwestern life by rewriting words to
sitcom themes. In the end they left the
audience with "Such a Good Feeling" in
the true Mr. Roger's spirit. "The Best Lit-
tle Frat House in Texas" presented by the
Kappa Alphas exposed all, even though
they did contend that "There ain't
Nothin' Dirty Goin' On." The final glimpse
of campus life came when the Alpha Delta
Pi's split up into the roles of boys and girls
to portray the complexity of Southwes-
tern's "Dating Game." Everyone enjoyed
their clever insight.
In celebration of their centennial, the
Sigs kept to their own tradition of singing
songs around a campfire (actually a can-
dle). No need to worry, a fire extinguisher
was close at hand.
Finally the Phi Delts were out to enter-
tain with classic party songs such as
"Twist -n- Shout" and "Louie, Louie" To
the audience's amusement they were
dressed appropriately in their togas and
Sing was a hit. The alumni and students
really got into the spirit of fun thanks to
the sororities and fraternities, great indi-
vidual acts, and witty M.C.'s. by Tonia

PvAMM VISITS S.U.
Campoigning For The Ticker
Campaigning for the Republican party
ticket, United States Senator Phil
Gramm made a campaign whistlestop at
Southwestern University on October
27th. The impetus for the visit by
Gramm, which was sponsored by the
University Republicans and the South-
western Committee to elect Bill Cle-
ments, was a very successful voter reg-
istration drive netting over 250 new reg-
istrations on campus. The well-known
Junior Senator spoke to more than 125
students, faculty, and Georgetownites.

arranged a computer scamming game.
Couples were matched by the computer
according to their expressed interest in
the one another. Even those not partici-
pating in the game had fun watching the

THE CHRISTMAS BALL
A Nighr ro Remember
Saturday, December 6, 1986 set a
new tradition for Southwestern Universi-
ty with the Christmas Ball. This event
was unique because it did not only cater
to the students, it included the entire
university community of staff, faculty,
administration and students. The Union
Program Council's Recreational Com-
mittee planned this extravaganza. Mem-
bers of the committee included: Tracy
Harting, Trisha Rickey, Jill Brown, Patty
McClure, Bridget Collins, Laura Kimball,
Rebecca Lincoln, Laurel Hoel, Debbie
Volker, Laura Byrd, Sharon Graham, and
Kristy Sorenson. Tracy Harting, the
committee chairperson exclaimed, "I
think it's great to invite everyone, it's
the first time that the entire school com-
munity has been invited to such a party.
It will be good to see all of the groups
mingling and having fun."
Besides mixing and mingling, the
guests were able to dine and dance the
night away. Bob Stage and staff pre-
pared succulent delights. The menu of-
fered the guests their choices of turkey
breast, baked ham, minature eggrolls
with the appropriate sauces, home
made rolls, chicken drummettes, and
cheeseballs covered with almonds. For
dessert, Christmas cookies dipped in
chocolate were served. Punches were
submitted by the sororities and the best
punch received a prize. The Zetas won.
Guests had the opportunity to work off
the calories on the dance floor by swing-
ing to the rhythms of Clifford Zirkel's big
band sound. Dance lessons were given
by Dr. Kain to show people how to "real-

were given away. Trisha Rickey conclud
ed, "I think it will give everyone the op
portunity to celebrate Christmas witr
the people who they see, live, and woH
with every day." Perhaps this gala even
will set a new tradition at S.U.
fhe Age of Computers
Southwestern University's Interna-
tional Brown Symposium on computers,
was held March 25-27, to demonstrate
how dramatically computers have
changed our everyday thinking in a
short amount of time. Dr. Naomi Baron
coordinated the symposium.
"Because computers are common-
place, we are no longer wondering
^whether to use a computer but which
one to use," she explained. In many cir-
cumstances we have little choice but to
use a computer; in fact, because of the
general, rapid growth of technology,
computers and computing impinge on
our lives in ways that we don't even
think about anymore, she said.
The symposium was entitled "Pando-
ra's Box. Computers in Everyday Life."
According to Baron, computers offer a
"Pandora's Box" of possibilities: Though
many people are apprehensive of them,
computers have the potential to affect
each of our lives profoundly.
Baron recruited a host of internation-
ally-known computer experts to speak
at the symposium, including Alan Kay,
who has been called the "father of the
personal computer"; Joseph Deken, au-
thor of the best-selling book The Elec-
tronic Cottage; sound Synthesis expert
John Chowning of Stanford University;
science fiction author Issac Asimov; and
other experts in areas such as robotics,
Fractals, expert systems and biome-
"Many states have passed computer
literacy requirements, some for stu-
dents, others for schoolteachers. Many
of the landmarks in the computer indus-
try have been established only recently-
the first Apple computer was introduced
in 1979, the first IBM Personal Comput-
er in 1981, the first Apple Macintosh in
1984- and the world of computing has
changed dramatically since then," said
"The Brown Symposium demonstrat-
ed how much change has come into our
everyday thinking in a short amount of
times because of computers," states
A Gambling Extravaganza
The grand-finale of Southwestern's Al-
cohol Awareness Week happened Satur-
day night from 8:00 PM to midnight in the
Union under the auspices of Casino Night.
According to Don Heins, the program's
director, Casino Night was designed as a
demonstration of fun without drinking.
The events planned proved to make a
gala affair with representatives from all
sectors of the campus community on the
invitation list. Along with blackjack tables
and faculty card tricksters, participants
found a wide range of vice producing
games. Such games ranged from three
crap tables and two roulette wheels all
equipped with "professional" dealers, six-
teen blackjack tables and a Wheel of for-

month of May, 1987. The ceremony fo-
cused on the importance of the human-
ities. The program employed a A Defini-
tion Of the Humanities by Ralph Perry to
explain and define this concept. The pro-
gram proceeded in the traditional way
with the response from the candidates,
the statement by the President, the con-
ferring of degrees, the greeting from the
Alumni Association, and the Alma Mater.
Following this, was the benediction and

Roy Shilling's Got What It Takes
Roy B. Shilling, Jr., president of
Southwestern University in Georgetown,
is among the 100 most effective college
and university leaders in the nation, ac-
cording to a two-year study recently
completed at Bowling Green State Uni-
versity in Ohio.
The study, entitled The Effective Col-
lege President, examined the personal
characteristics, professional back-
ground and attitudinal differences that
personify the men and women who have
been identified by their peers as the na-
tion's most effective college presidents.
Questionnaires were sent in 1984 to
485 presidents, scholars and leaders of
foundations and associations. The ques-
tionnaire asked people to name the five
most effective college presidents in the
nation, and resulted in 412 names. The
list was narrowed to 100 by selecting
people who were nominated the most
often, as well as through interviews with
18 higher education leaders across the
Dr. Shilling has been president of
Southwestern, a private university with
1,100 students, since 1981. During that
time the endowment has grown from
$26 million to more than $87 million,
putting Southwestern among the top
thirty in the nation in terms of endow-
ment per student. Southwestern also
has increased faculty salaries to among
the highest in the nation for institutions
of its kind, and has emphasized recruit-
ing students who are highly talented
Dr. Shilling, who has been called on
frequently as a national spokesman on

maintained strong ties with the United
Methodist Church during its 146 year
history. A courtesy of the Megaphone.

Slam Dunk to Dominate
Southwestern University Men's Bas-
ketball team finished their season with a
22-1 1 record, winning more games than
last year's quarter finalist team. The
1986-87 team failed to advance past the
St. Mary's Rattlers in the NAIA District IV
championship, losing 47-53.
This year's young team did without
experienced point-guard Wally Myers,
All-American Bobby Deaton, and the off-
the-glass rebounder Troy Bijou. Instead,
Coach Paul Peak casted a new starting
line-up of young faces and old hands.
Senior point-guard Greg Potter, five
foot nine inches, gave up his hectic ten-
dencies of the past to help the team with
sound ball-handling, solid defense, and
impressive offensive stats. Pete Fink
guarded with Potter to provide an ex-
tremely stable dribbling department of
the Buc's game.
Freshman Ray Baranco, and honor-
able mention in the NAIA All-American
poll and All District player, provided ex-
plosively powerful offense from his small
forward-big guard position through all
33 games, averaging 21.5 points per
Veteran senior forward Bruce Lewis
remained a mainstay in the Pirate's de-
fensive effort and often spurred and set
the tone of offensive play.
Senior rough-houser Jim Rathburn,
Southwestern's center and captain
posed a serious threat to the offensive
drives of opposing teams and contribut-
ed passing skills and clutch shooting to
the offensive effort for the Bucs. Rath-
burn averaged 10.3 rebounds per games
which statistically made him the second
best in District 4.
Other players from the bench pro-
vided Southwestern's team with sound
depth and a promising future. Freshman
small forward Tim Hickman and cente
Gerald Embry increasingly helped th<
team throughout the year, adding con
sistent and energized assistance ir
many games. Motivational leader:
Keane Fedosky and Jeff Knebel alsc
filled in throughout the year, solidly de
fining a complete team. Coach Peak':
son, David, was sidelined for most of th<
season with knee problems.
Peak set the national playoffs in Kan
sas City as the Team's goal for next sea
son. Fink, Baranco, and Peak are ex
pected to play guard positions. Injure<
big - man Steve Henderson should re
turn to add some offensive muscle t<
the Bucs game, helping Tim Hickman ii
the forward positions. Sophomon

uled to play center, by Joey Gimenez

Bucs Hit to Win
The SU Baseball Team finished their
1987 season with a 48-22 record.
Ranked in the NAIA Top 10 until their
final week of play, the Bucs had their
season of "Buc-Ball" cut short by the St.
Mary's Rattlers in the District Four Fin-
Some outstanding offensive players
for the Bucs in 1987 were designated
hitter Danny Cohen, who hit .444 with
20 homeruns and 91 RBI's; outfielder
Don Shelton, who batted .398 with 92
hits and 35 stolen bases; and a outfield-
er Derek Kempf, a .372 swatter with 12
HR's and 67 RBI's. The defensively
strong rocket arm of catcher Lauren
Hudson helped the Bucs quiet opposing
players on the basepaths while he hit
.329. Two outstanding freshman pitch-
ers, Ben Austin (6-1) and Don Childs (6-
2), helped the seasoned veteran Mike
Timlin (7-6) off the hill.
Mike Timlin was drafted in the third
round by the Toronto Blue Jays as a
3.28 ERA turned the heads of Pro-
scouts. Danny Cohen was looked at by
the Cincinatti Reds and Atlanta Braves.
Seniors Tommy Collins, Lauren Hudson,
and Jeff Allen have also left the team but
Coach Mallon predicted another suc-
cessful season in 1988.
Rounding out the season at the othe
positions were Jeff Giusti at first, Ja
LaGrone at second, Pat Myers at shor
stop, and Tom Collins at third base

Volley For Victory
Coach Glada Munt had high hopes for
the upcoming season as 5 starters were
returning from last year's team, but the
Bucs fell just shy of their goal - a national
championship. The team started out
well and moved into October ranked 8th
in the NAIA poll. The Bucs gained mo-
mentum into the second half of the sea-
son when they took first place in the
Missouri Western Invitational Tourna-
The Bucs beat NAIA-5th ranked Uni-
versity of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, NAIA-
2nd ranked Arkansas-Little Rock, and
handed the host team NCAA Division II-
4th ranked Central Missouri State their
first loss. After this spectacular showing,
the Bucs were ranked in the top 5 of the
NAIA poll throughout the rest of the sea-
son. The Bucs beat Texas Lutheran Col-
lege for the NAIA IV title (15-11, 13-15,
15-12, 15-11) and then travelled to Ft.
Worth and beat Texas Wesleyan College,
the NAIA District VIM champions, in 5
games (16-14, 9-15, 18-16, 5-15, 15-11)
to take the BiDistrict Championship. The
next stop for the Bucs was the NAIA Na-
tional Tournament, which was hosted by
Texas Wesleyan College in Ft. Worth.
The Bucs were seeded second going into
the tournament, but they ran into noth-
ing but bad luck and bad bounces. The
Bucs fell to Brigham Young University-
Hawaii, Graceland College-Iowa, and
They ended their season 31-13. Tela
Lindsey (34% kill efficiency, 5.3 kills per
game, 92% serving percentage, and
85% passing percentage) was named to
the NAIA All-American Second Team.
Both Tela and Kathy were voted to the
NAIA District IV First Team and junior
Kristy Horton was voted to the NAIA Dis-
trict IV Second Team.
The Bucs will be losing 3 seniors this
year: Tela Lindsey, Kathy Chapman, and
Ann Hargrove, an excellent middle
blocker who has won various all-tourna-
ment awards throughout her career.
Overall, the Bucs had a very ccessful
season and provided their fans with
many memorable moment, by Teri Par-

The Bucs, who finished this season at 28-10, are looking forward to next year and anticipating success.
Victorious Over Arch Rivals
The Southwestern Lacrosse team
ended the 1987 season with a 5-8 re-
cord. While the team didn't quite make a
.500 season, it was a winning year in
For the first time in the history of the
team, Southwestern brought home a
victory over arch rivals, the Baylor
Bears, during the season opener. Other
big wins included a blow-out victory of
17-3 over Louisiana State University.
The game against Louisiana marked the
highest score during one game for the
Bucs. Another first for the Bucs was a
12-7 win over the Texas A&M Aggies.
Other wins for the Bucs included two
victories over the Houston Lacrosse
The 1987 season was a season of re-
cords for the Bucs. Don Earles set a re-
cord for the most goals scored during
one game with six goals against the Ag-
gies. Earles also lead the team in total
scoring with a total of forty goals. Rob
Ranee and Dan Boobar set a record for
most assists in one game with four as-
sists each. Ranee led the team with
twelve assists, followed by Boobar with
The team gained national recognition
with attack player Wynne Haemisegger.
Currently she is the only woman playing
men's lacrosse. It is estimated that over
three million people have heard of
Southwestern and the Southwestern La-
crosse team due to all the publicity she
received during the past year.
The annual lacrosse banquet was held
April 15. Three awards were given to
three outstanding players. Sophomore
Don Earles was named most valuable
player for his forty goals. Senior Dan
Boobar was named most improved play-
er and freshman Reid Morrison was
named Rookie of the Year. The captains
also awarded some special awards to
some special team members. Senior
Russell Klawunn was awarded the
"hatchet award" for his devotion to the
penalty box. Sophomore Rob Ranee was
given the hot dog award for his spectac-
ular dancing on the field.
The end of the 1987 season marks the
end of an era for the Bucs. Five of the
seven remaining charter members of
the team will be graduating. These five
are Treg Taylor, Russell Klawunn, Jon
Rice, Dan Boobar and Travis Mathis.
These five along with charter members
Monty Curtis and Matt Norris were with
the team when the Bucs didn't score
half the goals Don Earles scored during
one season. They played during the year
when the team was so small that substi-
tutes were something the other teams
had. They leave the team having beaten

Lady Bucs Battle Out Season
The women lost their last two games
to finish the season 12-15. The last
home game was against Texas Wesley-
an. The women started out hot and
jumped to an early lead which they
maintained throughout the game. But
they cooled down and Texas Wesleyan
jumped out in front near the end of the
game. The Bucs rallied back but fell
short, 74-71. Leading scorers for the
game were Kathleen Patrick, Stephanie
Baker, and Carolyn Guyton.
The Bucs took their last game to U.T.

Team Won First Trophy In 41 Years
The Southwestern men's and wom-
en's tennis teams completed their sea-
son with a second place finish in the
NAIA District 4 Independent Tennis
Coach Mike Fabritius was pleased with
the results of the tournament and the
season as a whole. The men's team
compiled a 6-5 record, while the women
were 7-4 for the spring season.
In the tournament three Southwest-
ern players reached the finals. Andrew
James lost a close match in the finals to
Schreiners number one singles player.
Liza Brethouwer also lost in the wom-
en's singles finals. Liza then teamed up
with Kim Haney in the doubles finals and
came away just short of the victory.
Coach Fabritius said, "The season was
a great one. Anytime the kids compile a
winning record against scholarship
teams, they have to feel good about the
job they have done."

The Art Association is an organization
to promote interest in the visual arts
and to provide artistic growth for stu-
dents of the arts. In the 86-87 year, the
Art Association succeeded in almost
doubling its membership from the pre-
vious year. Sponsored events included
two museum trips, one to Fort Worth to
see the Kimball, Amon Carter, and Fort
Worth Museums of Fine Arts, and one to
the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. The
trip to Houston was coupled with an ar-
chitectural tour of Houston given by Dr.
Howe. Other events were a film series
on artists and a reception for the stu-
dent art show at the end of the year.

The 1986-1987 edition of the Mega-
phone will go down in history as Volume

His able-bodied assistants were; Joe Ev-
ans, sports; Stephanie Gimenez, arts and
entertainment; Aimee O'Malley, fiction

plete the lay-out each Wednesday night.
Heidi Lewis managed the advertising.
Sean Williams, Chuck Flagg, Joe Weeden,

tography skills. The art contributions
came from Stephanie Gimenez, Wes Wil-

The form and content progressed
steadily over the year. Because SU does
not have a journalism department per se
the Editor and his assistants relied heavily
on the ideas and assistance of the head of
the Student Publication Board, Ben Sher-
man, and University Relations writer, Jill
Mayfield. With their aid the Megaphone
steadily refined a professional look and
increased the Megaphone's popularity.
The best thing which occured over the
course of the year was the increasing in-
volvement of the students with the news-
paper. Their contributions made the
Megaphone a very well rounded and cam-
pus-oriented publication. Hopefully the
future will produce such similar interest in
the communication outlet provided by
by Joey Gimenez

The Kappa Sigma fraternity was found-
ed in 1869 at the University of Virginia. In
1886 the lota chapter was founded here
at Southwestern. One hundred years
later in 1986 we are still moving onward,
and celebrating our chapter's Centennial.
This has been an important and memora-
ble year to all of us.

Angers is located in the Loire Valley in
France. It is a charming city catering to
tourists without being "touristique". The
Angevins fondly have named Universite
Catholique de I' Quest of Angers as the
Cato. What most people don't realize is
that thanks to years of work by former
professor Dr. Regine Reynolds-Cornell,
Southwestern has a sister relationship
with the Cato whereby any student with
department approval may study there
with automatic transfer of credit.
One group from Southwestern included
Andrea Burleson, Jill Carpenter, Ridge
Dacy, Jay Huddleston, Elizabeth Rath-
burn, Karyn Sahl, Rick Whittacker and
Our class days were long and tiring.
There was not a lot of work outside of
class but the work in class I found pretty
demanding. There were students from
something like forty countries in the in-
ternational program at the Cato. I loved
meeting all those people and learned
quite a lot about other cultures from my
conversation and oral expression classes
with them, by Buffie Evans

The problem with recapping the
months in London is that it was more
than just a vacation, or an isolated exper-
ience, it was real life. All of the problems
of everyday existence were still present,
as well as the good times, but it was all in
a new context with new surroundings.
That is precisely what made the semester
abroad such a valuable experience.
One of the everyday occurrences that
was an integral part of London life was the
subway system called the Underground
or tube. The tubes were a necessity for
getting around, but at the same time pro-
vided a good opportunity to see the diver-
sity of the London population.
When not using the underground sys-
tem, simply taking a walk was an incredi-
bly enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.
The special thing about walking in London
is that no matter where you go, you can
always find some obscure historical spot
or famous person's home. There is just so
much history behind the city that it never
ceases to provide some new aspect to a
place that may have been visited many
I had many wonderful experiences
there, as well as abroad, and there is not
a single reply to explain the months spent
there. I think this program is an invaluable
asset to a Southwestern education. I
guess it will have to suffice to say that it
was an experience in life, and one that I
will remember, and treasure, forever, by

On February 7, 1907 Zeta Chapter of
Alpha Delta Pi was founded on the South-
western University campus. Eighty years
later this strong sisterhood continues its
long standing traditions.
Under the leadership of Karen
Schroeder as president, the ADPi's par-
ticipated in various events throughout the
1986-87 school year. They performed in
Sing as guys and girls and showed up as
pumpkins for the Homecoming Parade.
Later in October the annual Alpha Delta Pi
Play Day took place. Proceeds went to
their national philantrophy, the Ronald
Rush proved to be very successful for
Alpha Delta Pi, bringing in twenty-one
women to strengthen the life of this sis-
terhood. Perhaps the most exciting event
the ADPi's participated in was their 80th
Birthday party on February 7, 1987. They
were honored to welcome back daugh-
ters of their Charter members and many
other familiar faces.
Another honor the ADPi's enjoyed was
receiving the highest scholarship among
sororities for the fall semester with an
overall GPA of 3.22.
March was the month for the Alpha Del-
ta Pi State Convention and Zeta chapter
brought home many awards to add to
their previous ones.
There were many other activities in
which the ADPi's could be found partici-
pating in throughout the busy school
year. Zeta chapter looks forward to an-
other eighty years of a strong and suc-

Members of the Yearbook Staff worked
this past year to create a quality year-
book. Members attended workshops
where they designed pages, typed arti-
cles and captions, and organized photo-
graphs and data on the pages.
Staff members included Tonia Cook,
Brooke Burris, Jill Boone, Alison Green,
Katie Parvin, Holly Marshall, Michelle
Glick, Tracy Phillips, and Heidi Lewis. The
1987 Sou'wester photographers were
Joe Weedon and Chuck Flagg. These pho-
tographers undertook taking portrait pic-
tures of SU students, the organization
group shots, photos of the campus, and
many of the other candids which appear
in the book. Kenny Simon contributed his
photography and writing skills as well.
Ben Sherman advised the editor Steph-
anie Gimenez. Jill Mayfield and many oth-
ers, including Dan Yoxall, also cooperated
in the creation of the book.

As the year draws to a close it seems
one can look back and find that in 1986-
1987 we have seen a lot more of Mask
and Wig than in years past. Few may real-
ize that Mask and Wig is one of the oldest
organizations established here at South-
western. The group membership accepts
both theatre and non-theatre students,
however it does require participation in at
least two shows. Performing in Home-
coming's Sing started off the year with
songs from A Chours Line, Grease, Little
Shop of Horrors, and La Cage Aux Folles.
This year's performances were The Mer-
chant of Venice with guest artist David
Fox Brenton; Hayfever, John Oertling's
last show to direct here at S. U.; the musi-
cal How to Succeed in Business Without
Really Trying; and the traditional Experi-
ments in Theatre. Activities such as skat-
ing, bowling, rolling and attending shows
filled our year, creating both the best and
the worst of times which is typical in the
life of the theatre.

The PEARL Club (Physical Education.
Athletic Recreation, and Leisure) is devot-
ed to the development of lifetime athletic
recreational skills and to service to the
campus and community in the develop-
ment of fitness through recreational exer-
cise. PEARL swung into action in earnest
in its second year at Southwestern, high-
lighting the year with a rockclimbing trip
to the Enchanted Rock State Natural
Area in April. PEARL also provided service
to the campus and community by provid-
ing marshalls for the Georgetown Classic
Bicycle Race, judges for several local ju-
nior high school track meets, served as
concession workers at the state Cross
Country meets and selected Southwest-
ern baseball and volleyball games. PEARL
provided academic stress relief in both
the fall and spring semesters with two
tubing trips down the upper Guadalupe
River out of New Braunfels as well as
sponsoring the first annual Strongest Man
and Woman on Campus Contest.

Pi Kappa Alpha was founded at the Uni-
versity of Virginia in 1868. The colors are
garnet and gold. The S.U. chapter is the
Alpha Omicron chapter and was founded
Phi Delta Theta was founded nationally
in 1848 at Miami University, Ohio. The
Texas Gamma Chapter has been at
Southwestern since 1886.
This year the Phi Delts welcomed thir-
teen new diversified brothers. Through
dedication and hard work, the brothers of
Phi Delta Theta have built a lasting frater-
nity worthy of many distinguished nation-
al awards. However, in spite of our nation-
al acclaim, our greatest assets are our
fraternal bonds and our brotherhood.

It was a record breaking year for the
National Alumni Phonathon this year.
The phonathon raised over 101,000
dollars, more money than any previous
year. The Brown Foundation of Houston
sets up the Brown Challenge which
matches gifts $1:$1 for the Phonathon.
The top six callers this year were Kate
Butler, Matt Dean, Laura Degenhart, Mi-
chelle Glick, Judy Lukert, Tom Oliver, and
Steve Sergiovanni. Chaperone Dan Yoxall
took the six top callers on a cruise to
Nassau, Bahamas. The trip was filled with
fun, excitement and many unforgettable
moments. Overall, the Phonathon was a
tremendous success along with a most
memorable cruise experience, by Steve

One of the things I just loved about be-
ing an R.A. were the 4:00 a. m. lockout
calls from partied-out people. Just a small
part of our 24 hour job was then finding
out that their keys were in their pockets.
But most people think we're on duty
only a few times a week to lock the doors
at night and kick the guys out after mid-
For us, though, the realities of being an
R. A. are more serious and entailing.
Problems that we helped others encoun-
ter included rape, pregnancy, suicide, de-
pression, and other trials of college stu-
dents. Being an R. A. helped me develop
quick decision abilities and reference
skills for aiding others in solving the di-
We did not try to be police officers. The
rules we enforced were courtesy or safety
related and depended on resident co-op-
eration. One of the worthwhile elements
of being an R.A. was the trust and friend-
ship that developed out of a small amount
of caring and help.
The difficulty of Time Management was
a major factor in being an R.A. We are
students, we play intramurals, have extra-
curricular activities and meetings. On top
of this, though, we were always available
for our residents to use us for advice and
for problems that needed outside help in
solving, by Natalie Marshall

The rights of the animals have been a
controversy for hundreds of years.
Slowly people began realizing that men
like Descartes, who said animals feel no
emotions at all, were wrong and the
push for better animal welfare began.
The 1900's have seen great advances
and setbacks in the animal welfare is-
sues. However, the animal rights move-
ment has gained considerable momen-
tum in the past five years.
Animal rights issues range from a local
campaign to have dogs and cats spayed
and neutered to ending the baby seal
Southwestern's Animal Rights Advo-
cates sponsored programs and disscus-
sions on contemporary animal rights is-
sues. We helped educate the campus
community on responsible pet owner-
ship and helped the Williamson County
Humane Society. We had films and
speakers. Before this year, there was
not an animal welfare organization on
campus and several students expressed
a need for one.
The Panhellenic Council, composed of
two representatives from each of the
four national sororities on campus was
originally created as an advisory and
governing organization to promote in-
ter-Greek relations. The Council be-
longed to the National Panhellenic Con-
ference and abided by National rules re-
garding rush and inter-sorority relations.
The Panhellenic Council at Southwest-
ern encouraged growth and develop-
ment of individuals and sororities and
worked to create a strong unified Pan-
The Council promoted a "Go Greek"
campaign, worked on Greek Week, spon-
sored a scholarship reception recogniz-
ing members in all eight Greek social
organizations on campus who had a GPA
of 3.5 or better, and provided a pledge
picnic for the Spring pledges of all eight
Greek social organizations, as well as
regulating Rush throughout the year.
The eight member council was stronger
and closer this year than ever before
and was proud of all that Panhellenic
XYZ is a fairly new organization that
jwas established in the Spring of 1985.
XYZ stands for Xtra Years of Zest which
lis similiar to adopt a grandparent. XYZ
provides interaction between college
students and older adults at the Wesley-
an Retirement Home. The organization
has several mixers a year with the resi-
dents at the retirement home along with
providing an errand service once a
week. The older adults enjoy the fellow-
ship and the members of XYZ are able to
increase their knolwedge through work-
ing with residents.
The sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha have
worked to uphold our strong links to tradi-
tions in modern times. The national fra-
ternity, founded in 1898 at Longwood
College in Farmville, Virginia, has grown
to the third largest greek organization in
the nation. Lambda chapter, established
at Southwestern in 1906, has remained
active both on campus and in our national
Last summer we received the Member-
ship Selection Award for Excellence at our
International Convention. We also placed
second in "University Sing" with our
"Cats" presentation. We came in first
place in ADPi playday, and have been
competitive in intramural sports. For the
first time this year we began a traditional
Iron-a-thon to raise money for our nation-
al philanthropy, the National Association
for Retarded Citizens. By ironing over
seven hundred shirts, we raised approxi-
Yet, more important than any award of
recognition we have received, is the spe-
cial bond between ZTA sisters. Although
we are diversified in personality and ac-
tivities, we compliment one another un-
der our common respect and love for one
another. Within our organization we have
representatives of lacrosse, basketball,
music, international studies, honor soci-
eties, fraternity little sisters, every major,
and members of other governing bodies
on campus. We have members in every
facet of university life. The sisterhood
within ZTA provides a strong foundation
from which a member can develop and
explore the various aspects of college life;
making the experience one that is com-
plete and fulfilling.

The Union Program Council provided a
vareity of activities for the campus. UPC
consisted of committees for music
events, special events, recreation, travel,
student activities, films, cultural events,
and a radio committee. These commit-
tees provided concerts, dances, lectures,
films, and outings for the university popu-
lation, usually at no charge to the stu-
dents. Some of these activities included
juggler/comedian, Edward Jackman; the
musical group, Regency; an all-campus
Christmas Ball (preceded by ballroom
dancing lessons); an inter-collegiate
dance with St. Edwards University; and a
student talent show; among others.
Involvement in UPC existed at three
levels; students could simply be audi-
ences/participants, they could be com-
mittee members, or they could apply for
a position as committee chairperson. In-
volvement in UPC provided students with
an opportunity for expansion of cultural
tastes, growth and responsibility, and the
ability to learn new skills and discover
The Student Coalition For a An Orga-
nized Peace Effort (S.C.O.P.E.) was
formed in the Fall semester of 1985 by
several Southwestern students whose
concern over the nuclear arms race and
escalating U.S. intervention in Central
America compelled them to come togeth-
er and work for world peace. S.C.O.P.E.
works to accomplish its goals by educat-
ing the campus community on peace is-
sues and participating in various forms of
political action, such as writing to legisla-
tors, circulating petitions, and becoming
involved in anti-war demonstrations.
S.C.O.P.E. is a chapter of the National
Organization United Campuses to Pre-
vent Nuclear War.
